Lost contact icon

by djohlson / March 4, 2012 11:36 AM PST

Just got an iPhone 4S and have been downloading much stuff. One item was contacts, which I had the icon on the screen. But now I've downloaded my contacts, the icon has disappeared. I don't want to revert to original settings and lose all the other items I've downloaded, but I'd like to see that Contact icon back on screen. Suggestions?

Back up the iPhone,

Restore to Factory Defaults
On completion, do a Restore from backup.

As the Contact button is part of the iOS, it will be replaced by the process, along with all your contacts

Came across "utilities" box and found lost icon in it. Drag and drop it, now where I want it.

Yeah, I was going to suggest checking the folders to see if it ended up in there by accident. Cool.
